"bad decisuions on future"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Anything else?

after 9 weeks in your care despite told my sister needed care or mental health hospital she is now at home and doing very well indeed. had that decision gone ahead she would have been institutionalised for life . she is 45. the mind boggles. how could they get it so wrong. i despair for people without family who can stand their corner. as far as we are concerned the doctors really dont give a damn. this girl does have aa future now..hope i never have to be in that position.. without a family where are you. i would like to add she was in langham ward
